I was disappointed with my experience w/ Honey Grove. Paying expensive Summer registration fees that you are told would cover numerous extravagant activities throughout the summer and they only take your kids on “1” for the whole summer is enough to disappoint anyone. We signed a permission slip for my 3 yr old to go on a field trip one time and found out they WALKED the kids to a nearby Chick-fil-A to play in the little play area! None of the staff informed us about the alternative plan until we ASKED the next day. When you are “obligated” to pay a weekly tuition but the director finds it necessary to close the daycare EVERY chance she gets... I started to feel taken advantage of. For instance, this past Thanksgiving, the daycare was closed “WEDNESDAY “, Thursday, and Friday but 100%weekly tuition is still to be paid. (Wednesday?!...) I asked my friends what days their kids daycare closed for the holiday. All of them told me just Thursday and Friday. Luckily, my parents are retired and don’t mind watching my kids. I could go on but hopefully you get the picture. Do your research on this business and how they operate before you enroll your child/children here.
Mrs. Brenda is the BEST!!! She is so involved with the kids, and she treats them as of they were her own. At Kids Cove you get the complete package Education, Discipline, and Love! I wouldn't want my kid any where else
I sometimes went to their auctions.. A farce! I quickly learned that many private thrift store owners went there and made side deals with the participants. J....was notorious for intimidating other bidders not to go against him. Buyers who sent their purchases to Africa and the Philippines were also known to make side deals. All too often, some bidders bid on a bin no one "wanted" because something of greater value had been stashed for them/buried way down in the bin and no one knew it was there. Too many shady deals going on . Often items for bid were taken to private vans and trucks without the auction participants not having had a chance to bid on them. J......and his wife were known for this. All too often having made beforehand deals with the assigned auctioneer.
I have granddaughters 3 1/2 year old and a 5 mos old who attended daycare here. And they LOVE it. I have taken advantage of the open door policy and was impressed. Even my mother have dropped in and was impressed. My sister and mother both have worked in daycares for years and liked what Lots For Kids had to offer.
i would rather go the extra mile and shop at this location then the lynnhaven location , all staff including the manager have always had a pleasant attitude and have always been helpful. granted i have seen some things priced a little high but for the most part i think all the pricing including most of the furniture is very affordable. i got a loveseat made by royal in mint condition and with the 50% off and the 25% more taken off for shopping on furniture friday , it came to about 44 bux!!!
A wonderful place! My son has grown so much here and learns something new everyday. He loves coming here everyday and the teachers are so patient and loving with all of the children. My son has rotated through 8 daycares since he was born and he's only 4. He has never been happier then when he's here. If your looking for a place to guide your child and prepare them for kindergarten this is where to start.
very friendly staff. but EXTREMELY high prices for a thrift store. I'm not quite sure who does the PRICING for the clothing and furniture but these are NOT THRIFT STORE VALUES OR PRICES.
My son has been attending for about three and a half months. There are not enough kind things I can say about this establishment. Christine and her entire staff are so friendly and nurturing. I have no qualms, second guesses or doubts when I leave my infant there. I know he is in good hands and an incredibly positive learning environment. I know that he's well taken care of. As a mother, if you can't be with your child every day, at least knowing the people that look after him are sincerely good people is a comfort.
My son has been enrolled there for two days, along with my daughter for after school care. Christine has went above and beyond to accommodate me and my schedule even to the point of picking up my daughter from school when no other after school transportation programs had availability. She has been so personable to work with and I feel like my girlfriend is watching my kids. She is a former teacher that loves what she does and personally helped my 9 yr old with her studies. My son came home with cute little arts and crafts and letter drawing, and he's only 2. They have meal plans and a structures curriculum Its only been 2 days, but I feel like I have the best childcare in the hampton roads area. Thanks Christine for being AWESOME!
